The study of evidence-based course leadership in higher education focusses on twodifferent areas of practice: higher education course leadership, and evidence-basedpractice. Course leadership is an understudied area of research, with few publicationsdiscussing the role of the course leader in higher education. Although evidence-basedpractice is an...

As the world’s human population continues grow in number and mobility, and the impacts of climate change take effect, the opportunities for problematic relationships with non-human animals multiply. There are escalating threats to health from wild vectors of zoonotic disease, and so-called “invasive” species have been identified as a significant di...

This Systematic Review Registration Form is intended as a general-purpose registration form. The form is designed to be applicable to reviews across disciplines (i.e., psychology, economics, law, physics, or any other field) and across review types (i.e., scoping review, review of qualitative studies, meta-analysis, or any other type of review). Th...

PICO question In Dogs Does Feeding Raw Dietary Treats Reduce or Prevent Periodontal Disease? Clinical bottom line Considering the weak evidence on raw bones and lack of evidence on other types of raw treats, veterinarians and veterinary nurses should be cautious when recommending raw treats to support periodontal health in dogs. Additionally, th...
Article
Purpose The purpose of this paper is to review the literature with regards to the course leader in small and specialist higher education in the United Kingdom. Design/methodology/approach First, the role of the course leader is explored, followed by an evaluation of the barriers to effective course management. This is then followed by a discussi...

PICO question In adult dogs, does feeding a raw food diet alter urine composition compared to a kibble diet? Clinical bottom line The evidence provided by the single study identified is weak and the outcomes can neither support nor challenge the hypothesis that a raw food diet increases the risk of urinary calculi compared to a kibble diet. There...

Article
As evidence-based veterinary nursing is becoming a more common concept in veterinary practice, RVNs will more often be presented with anecdotal evidence by owners presenting to their practice. It is important that RVNs understand some of the issues associated with anecdotal and testimonial evidence and why these are not a suitable basis for decisio...

p>In light of the absence of evidence, vets and vet nurses should be cautious when recommending raw diets to support periodontal health and advise clients accordingly by relying on their clinical experience rather than the literature until more evidence is generated. <img src="https://www.veterinaryevidence.org/rcvskmod/icons/pr-icon.jpg" alt="Pee...
Article
As part of my PgCert in Higher Education Practice, I undertook a learning and teaching research project into the effect of small group mathematics tutorials on student confidence and academic performance. I chose this project because it related directly to my practice as a higher education lecturer: I regularly supported first year animal science a...

Students embarking on a bioscience degree course, such as Animal Science, often do not have sufficient experience in mathematics. However, mathematics forms an essential and integral part of any bioscience degree and is essential to enhance employability. This paper presents the findings of a project looking at the effect of mathematics tutorials o...

Background / Purpose: Escherichia coli is a common food based pathogen. Carvacrol and thymol have antimicrobial properties, but also affect food organoleptic properties. Application of vapours might be a viable shelf-life extension strategy without affecting food quality. Main conclusion: Absorbent pads releasing carvacrol or thymol inhibit gr...

Before starting a new animal experiment, thorough analysis of previously performed experiments is essential from a scientific as well as from an ethical point of view. The method that is most suitable to carry out such a thorough analysis of the literature is a systematic review (SR). An essential first step in an SR is to search and find all poten...

It has been known for years that diet plays a key role in the development of most chronic diseases. The increasing industrialisation, urbanisation and mechanisation occurring in almost all countries around the world has led to a shift in dietary patterns: the consumption of animal products increases and diets are becoming richer in high-fat, high-e...

My doctoral research project aims to investigate attitudes of HE course leaders in small specialist HEIs towards evidence use as part of their role. Additionally, it seeks to identify perceived barriers to using evidence effectively, and propose solutions which can be implemented by institutions.
